OPERATION SILENT RESOLVE
AREA OF OPERATIONS: TORBRUCK PROVINCE
GRID LOCATION: TBD
ASSETS: BRUISER 1, APOLLO 1
The prisoner we extracted from the enemy compound has confirmed our fear about the ambassadors location. He is being held in a safehouse in Oreocastro, Torbruck Province. This is an enemy strongpoint and the suspected HQ for insurgent activity within all of Northern Syria. A raid at this point is unwise.
We have intel that a PKK milita leader will be meeting with members of Shah’s inner circle today in a local beach resort. Our primary objective is to capture or kill the insurgent leaders. We will be splitting this operation into two parts.
Phase One: Reconnaissance
We will land early in the morning (0300) and move to a recon location overlooking the villa. We will wait there until the meeting which is projected to be around 1130.
Phase Two: Raid
Once we have positive identification on the insurgents we can move on the target.
As usual the RoE is strict. This is a civilian resort so we need to be wary of civilians mixed with insurgent troops, as well as local PKK assets that will be in the area. They are our allies in the region, but we suspect this group is meeting with Shah’s leadership to collaborate with them.
ENEMY TROOP STRENGTH
The compounds are on the outskirts of a major Athirian Province town. Insurgent response can be as quick as 10 minutes and they will likely begin to muster as soon as our Black Hawks are heard touching down. We expect 5-10 in each compound and 30-50 potential insurgents in the town itself.
Apollo 1 will be on standby for QRF, but we will have no CAS for this mission in the AO.
